IT’S BEEN 5 MONTHS! I did almost 20 quick caricatures for Library@Chinatown ( National Library Board Singapore) in March, here are some of the ones i had fun doing. I think it’s not a bad attempt for a first timer. hahaha 😀

Till next time! (I.need.better.blogging.and.drawing.habits.)

first and second round of character design crit with Hans Bacher have been productive. I still have to “simplify” / stylize my character more ’cause i tend to add too much details.

round one:

it starts with some girl i drew on the bus ’cause she reminded me of the little girl in Fan Ho’s work. And then come the first inspiring design marked with the X.

some developments made for the second crit:

I guess I was too obsessed by the idea to draw something pretty. she doesn’t look like she’s designed for… animating.

Oh well, here’s something i made for fun. how I envision her clothes to be.

tried it out with existing fabric prints found on google.  Should be more of a patched work, i hope to come up with my own design someday.   And maybe i would do it like Camila do RosĂĄrio ‘s work here

Isn’t it just beautiful?

Also, i’ve found my inspiration for my cityscape design for the film.

here are some of Amy Casey‘s work. i hope to achieve something like this for the final look. 

It has both the surreal and claustrophobic aspects that I was looking for. HOW I WISH I DID THESE BEAUTIFUL STUFF! OH MAN. but it’s  a great place to start on environment design. 😀 oh yay~ GO RF!

Caesar is an illustrated book i did based on a series of photographs took by my classmate Dorothy in 2008. It’s a tragic story about a complex love relationship between a dove, a crow and a cat. Here are some images.
